Wood Fired Boiler Hydronic Heating

Wood fired boilers remain a popular option for heating. Though based on an older technology wood fired boiler hydronic heating now benefits from some environmentally friendly and sustainable fuel options. Pellet fuel is one such option, with pellet boiler systems ideal for large scale heating projects.

 

Wood Fired Boiler Hydronic Heating

Moderate sized homes and buildings work well with wood fired boiler systems. Water pipes beneath the floor efficiently heat the room by circulating heated water. This gives a very natural form of heat. There are no drafts of exposed heating surfaces, and very little heat is lost through the roof. The house is heated from the ground up, which works efficiently if the house has at least reasonable insulation.

Wood Fired Boiler Hydronic Heating can be done with either a small wood burning stove in the main room, rather like a fireplace, or a large scale boiler kept in a basement or separate room.

Wet back boilers are more popular than other options because they expose more of the heating surface to the water. This heats more water in a more efficient manner. These wet back boilers are also long lasting with very little maintenance.

 

Appeal of Wood Boiler Hydronics

Modern wood fire boilers are designed to look attractive. Operating rather like a stove or fireplace they can be the centrepiece of the room. Often they can be manufactured to suit the colour scheme of the house.

Smoke is directed through a chimney, and causes no problems. Cleaning the wood burning surface is fairly straightforward. In all ways these wood fired boilers are superior in operation to traditional fireplaces.

 

Pellet Wood Fired Boiler Hydronic Heating

Pellet boilers use a type of processed wood which produces minimal pollution, and is safe and easy to store. The wood burning mechanism is designed to self-feed, meaning they can be filled with fuel and left to operate without supervision. Like all hydronic system they heat from the floor upward, with no drafts of exposed heating surfaces.

Pellet systems are excellent for large scale buildings, but not the average home. They are considered a replacement for older oil burning systems.
